Buccaneers update their preseason depth chart, kind of

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released their second depth chart of the preseason, and they changed exactly nothing about it, except for the players they signed and waived. The team did, however, make two position battles official: Joe Hawley and Evan Smith are both noted as starting centers, while Bryan Anger and Jacob Schum are listed as the 'starting' punters/holders.

Other than that, there's not much to write about here. The coaching staff probably did change the depth chart internally -- and it wasn't even always true to how they lined up in the first preseason game -- but they didn't communicate that to the media department.

Still, this gives you a general indication of how the Bucs are going into their second preseason game on Saturday. Here's the full depth chart.
